Our Monthly Giving Program protects the Center from the peaks and troughs of one-time donations. By joining our Monthly Giving Program, you reduce our fundraising costs and frequency of fundraising events that require a heavy amount of operational logistics. This, in turn, allows us to invest more funds directly into the community. Having a steady income allows us to make plans for strategic growth. You can update your planned giving at any time.

Upcoming Events
Spiritual Night

July 19th
8:00 - 10:30 PM

Join us for Spiritual Night! Our speaker will be Sheikh Asim Buyuksoy, our Director of Religious Affairs, and he will explore purification of the soul as related to the heart. Hearts cannot be satisfied unless they are connected with Allah and they cannot connect with Him if they are not pure because Allah is pure and He accepts what is pure. We’ll talk about the purification of the soul from the lens of the Qur’an and the Sunnah. Refreshments will be served!
Battling Our Biases with Father Boyle


July 21st
12:00 - 1:00 PM
ICSC Lecture Hall

When Father Greg Boyle founded Homeboy Industries, he established a culture of creating
second chances for individuals in Los Angeles. His work has only been possible by talking to people about how we as a society can move away from the language of violence and isolation toward a language of understanding and breaking biases. We have subconscious perceptions that sometimes lead to our own dehumanizing understandings of people. This mindset can cause us to treat individuals as violent caricatures rather than who they are in reality. Father Boyle will discuss how we can shift into a more transformative mindset through which we can practice patience, compassion, and empathy to build better relations with those who have different life experiences.
